Labour force, Australia, Sep 2015

By Australian Bureau of Statistics


Contains estimates of employed and unemployed persons classified by sex, full-time/part-time status, states and territories and some age groups; and persons not in the labour force. Whats new in the labour force? CHANGE TO THE RELEASE TIMING OF LABOUR FORCE PRODUCTS The Independent Technical Review (McCarthy Review) into the ABS\u27s Labour Force Survey (LFS) conducted in 2014 presented a number of recommendations including that the ABS consider "whether or not it is necessary to delay publishing LFS data until early in the week following the current timetable on an ongoing basis or at least when changes are being made to the LFS". The ABS has consulted with stakeholders on this issue and the stakeholders almost unanimously supported the proposal to delay by one week the release of Labour Force, Australia (cat. no. 6202) and the related detailed monthly (cat. no. 6291.0.55.001) and detailed quarterly (cat. no. 6291.0.55.003) products. Based on this feedback the ABS will delay the release of these products by one week from the January 2016 issue. Implementing the change from the January 2016 issue will ensure that key users have sufficient opportunity to include the new release dates in their schedules. The delayed release means, for example, that the January 2016 issue of Labour Force, Australia will be released on Thursday 18 February instead of Thursday 11 February.   &nbsp
